Like I said to Tara & Shine, they must get bored hearing how great their Villas are, they really are perfect! We stayed for 12 nights and there wasn't one single time I thought to myself 'Oh I wish they had this or had that' They have put an incredible amount of thought into their beautiful villas and we simply...

From the moment we arrived and walked into our stunning villa, we were blown away at our first glance at the amazing view out our private bi-folding deck.... Just stunning! Beautifully designed with all your wants and needs met. It is absolutely fantastic being able to walk straight from your deck onto the beach. Swimming was extremely safe for our... More

Thank you again Shine and Tara for another wonderful holiday. It is great to have the basics - bread, milk, juice,spreads etc there when you arrive. Love the fresh fruit every morning. The place was as wonderful as we remembered it. We will be back next July.

We loved our stay at CBV's. Having not to worry about breakfast supplies for an early arrival is always a special treat, one less thing to arrange and have to think about. Everything is well organised from having a nice well cared for environment to the BBQ/Kayaks / Snorkel equipment and you don't have to pay extra, which is great... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks and will say it was a brilliant stay. Tara and her sister were the most friendliest people and their adorable kids were a pleasure getting to know. The vicinity to everything was great. We have been to Cook Islands before but this was the first time we stayed here and we WILL be back... More

We took my 80 year old mother and she shared with our 6 year old son, plus another family came with us. For everyone it was perfection, even on the rainy days The snorkeling, kayaking, hammocks,pool....just fantastic.... More

Just look at the other reviews of Cooks Bay Villas and you will know this place is special. We stayed in Villa 5 this time (we’ve stayed several times) and it was spotlessly clean and luxurious (just like all the others). Location: The location of Cooks Bay Villas suits us beautifully. The villas are just a short walk to Wigmore’s... More

You could not find a more idyllic setting for a beach villa anywhere! We took one villa from the 5 that are in the small complex for myself, husband and 15 year old. 2 good sized bedrooms each with own large shower room and access to enclosed and private courtyard area with spa tub, never tried it though. Comfortable beds... More
